Raising Public Awareness
NeoStem is proud to support the Stem for Life Foundation (SFLF), a not-for-profit organization devoted to raising public awareness of adult stem cell therapies and their therapeutic promise, as well as supporting the advancement of adult stem cell research and development. Founded in 2007, SFLF is a non-partisan, non-denominational organization that brings together a group of dedicated scientists, physicians, advocates, educators, philanthropists, public servants, students and clergy that are dedicated to moving stem cell science forward by using adult stem cells to strengthen the body’s natural response to injury and disease.
SFLF is deeply committed to expediting development of stem cell therapies that offer real hope to individuals suffering from a wide-range of life threatening medical conditions.

The mission of the Stem for Life Foundation is to raise public awareness about adult stem cells and their therapeutic promise, and to support the advancement of adult stem cell research and development.
The partners are spearheading a campaign to generate awareness of the exciting potential for cellular therapies to lead a fundamental shift in medical treatment options— a move away from just managing illnesses to developing cures. This international initiatives aim to teach, inform and provide research support on important issues of human health, with a focus on the present and future of medical progress in relation to adult stem cell research, all while promoting the highest respect for human life.
In April 2013, NeoStem, SFLF, the Pontifical Council and STOQ hosted The Second International Vatican Adult Stem Cell Conference: Regenerative Medicine – A Fundamental Shift in Science & Culture, following the success of the first conference in November 2011. With renowned journalists serving as moderators, the conference featured leading adult stem cell scientists and clinicians, thought leaders of faith, ethics and culture, business leaders as well as Ministers of Health and Ambassadors to the Holy See. During the event, adult stem cell scientists and clinicians presented an array of ongoing medical advancements occurring throughout the world including regrowing damaged and diseased organs; regenerating damaged tissue caused by heart attacks; growing new skin for burn victims; rebalancing our own immune systems; advancements in pediatric cancers; preventing organ rejection and addressing a range of other conditions and trauma, such as stroke, Parkinson’s disease and traumatic brain injuries via adult stem cell therapies.
